BCL easyPDF SDK hides the complexity associated with converting a document into PDF and encapsulates it into as little as 3 lines of code. By putting BCL easyPDF SDK API in a fully compliant COM Object wrapper, BCL allows programmers to create, manipulate, and modify PDF documents from any language that supports COM Objects, including Java, ASP.NET, VB.NET, C#, Visual C++, PHP, ColdFusion, Perl and more.
3 Lines of Code
BCL easyPDF SDK hides the complexity associated with converting a document into PDF and encapsulates it into as little as 3 lines of code.
- 1 | Set oPrinter = CreateObject ('easyPDF.Printer.7')
- 2 | Set oPrintJob=oPrinter.PrintJob
- 3 | oPrintJob.PrintOut 'C:\input.doc', 'C:\output.pdf'
Just imagine the usual programming steps that you have to take in order to convert a document to PDF. Not only you have to successfully launch the host application and open the document, but you also have to make sure that nothing happens during conversion. One little mishap can grind your application to a halt. And multiply that with the number of documents you need to convert and the number of processes you need to spawn.
With BCL easyPDF SDK, you can speed up your development process and at the same time; increase the performance of your applications.
Works with many programming languages
By putting BCL easyPDF SDK API in a fully compliant COM Object wrapper, BCL allows programmers to create, manipulate, and modify PDF documents from any language that supports COM Objects. Languages that can access BCL¿s COM Object based easyPDF SDK include:
Complete set of PDF APIs
- Visual Basic.NET
- Visual C# .NET
- Visual C++ .NET
- Visual C++
- Visual Basic
- Python (requires PythonWin)
- Any programming language that supports COM Object, ActiveX, OLE.
BCL easyPDF SDK comes with all APIs that you may need in developing enterprise server and desktop applications:
High quality PDF output
- PDF Printer API - supports converting printable documents to PDF
- PDF Processor API - process and manipulate PDF documents
- PDF Converter API - raster PDF into images
- PDF Document API - process PDF forms.
Unlike the majority of other vendors, BCL easyPDF SDK uses its own internally developed PDF engine which was developed from the ground up to deliver unprecedented quality and performance demanded by the enterprise users.
Besides creating high quality PDF, BCL easyPDF SDK also supports: PDF bookmarks, PDF hyperlink, UNICODE, digital signature, digital stamp, PDF watermark, PDF metadata, 40bit and 128bit PDF encryption, merge PDF, split PDF, rotate PDF, optimise PDF, delete PDF, PDF form filling, PDF form data collections.
BCL easyPDF SDK can produce high quality PDF without intermediary PostScript file. This translates into much faster PDF conversion.
Reliable Error Recovery
BCL easyPDF SDK has robust error handling built into it to allow trouble free PDF creation, modification and merging. Threads are monitored for time-outs to make sure that they do not stop an application¿s operation. Each thread in BCL easyPDF SDK is isolated from other thread and does not affect their operation.
Special handling of Microsoft Word and Excel documents allows exceptions thrown by either of these programs to be handled effectively through BCL easyPDF engine, ensuring that excellent PDFs are created from these applications under all normal circumstances.
Thread-safe and scalable
BCL easyPDF SDK allows you to run unlimited PDF conversion processes. The number of processes you can run is limited only by:
- Your CPU speed
- Your system's memory
- The capability of the host applications (e.g. MS Word) you are using.
BCL easyPDF SDK also supports multiple-processor machines.
